fit the mold, at the beach

It's so easy to retouch even the lousiest pics. We want to "look good" and fit the mold in any occasion. So we apply filters and correctors to our cell-phone images, inspired by the images we are exposed to every single day. But theses pictures are lies. The people in them don't actually exist, not like that.

This is the final result of only 30min of retouching a picture that was taken with a mobile phone. Imagine what is possible with more time and better quality images.
Don't believe anything you see - be it in print, on TV or on the internet. Everything is touched up.
